Make Way for Soxlings

One of the most famous landmarks in Boston is the Make Way for Ducklings statues in the Public Garden. They are dressed in sombreros for Cinco de Mayo, in Santa hats at Christmas, and now, for the World Series, this.

Seven little ducklings and their mama duck, all decked out in Red Sox jerseys and beards. In our house, we’re calling it “Make Way for Soxlings.” The mama duck’s beard is the shortest – closely cropped, so we’re pretty sure she’s David Ortiz. The duck in the second picture has a long, flyaway beard, so he’s obviously Johnny Gomes.

What do you think? How would you dress the duck family if you had the opportunity?

Travel Theme: Stone

How convenient that Ailsa’s Travel Theme this week is stone, and Hubby and I spent a couple hours today in the lovely Cedar Grove Cemetery in Dorchester, Mass. So, I give you my stone photos, shot today.
